these snowmen are knit in the round in one piece and are easy and fast to make. use up scraps of worsted or fingering weight yarn for the cozy scarf embellishment! add these to your tree, give as a gift, or use as a present topper.


size us 6 (4.0 mm) double-pointed needles

worsted weight yarn in white (i like patons classic worsted wool in aran)

contrast yarn (black or brown for eyes and mouth, worsted or fingering weight scraps for the scarf)
